Living Shorelines Workshop

 
The Living Shorelines Workshop is designed to present soft shoreline stabilization techniques that promote the use of native vegetation and natural materials to reduce erosion, improve water quality and preserve habitat. Participants will characterize living shoreline projects, discuss the costs and benefits associated with living shorelines as opposed to more traditional shoreline stabilization mechanisms, review permitting requirements and explore funding opportunities that support these projects.

This regional event is being advertised in Florida, Alabama and Mississippi. Target audiences include marine contractors, coastal planners and managers, waterfront property owners and interested citizens. Workshop fee is $15 per person. Refreshments, lunch and workshop materials are included in the fee.
